Anastasia Stoyannides, B.A, is a certified yoga teacher in the technique of Eva Ruchpaul’s hatha-yoga “bien tempéré”, Paris/France. Originally Greek, Anastasia has been based in Vienna/Austria since 1992 and currently shares her life and teaching career between Austria, Greece and Spain.
Anastasia has been a guest teacher for over 28 years, invited internationally to facilitate seminars with various groups of people. She herself gives regular instruction in her private practice and organizes intensive yoga workshops and yoga retreats throughout the European continent.
She had the good fortune to be introduced to movement in her early childhood and be accompanied by it ever since. In her previous profession as a performer, both as a soloist and as a member of dance and theatre companies, she explored improvisation as a key to spontaneous creativity.
After years of an intensive study of the human body, she finds her spiritual home at the yoga practice of Eva Ruchpaul, the technique that helped Anastasia to fuse all her previous knowledge of movement to teaching yoga and to embodying the personal growth.
Anastasia’s approach to hatha-yoga focuses on a profound and honest way of practicing as an inspiration for students and yoga teachers to trust to the beauty of their existence and to unfold towards a refined state of self-reliance and inner silence.
